  • God, Pharaoh and Moses

    7 July 2020  by Dr William Ford
    A God who sends plagues and hardens hearts?1 Arguably the greatest act of salvation in the Old Testament is the exodus from Egypt, recounted in the first fifteen chapters of the book of Exodus. However, the means by which God brings about this deliverance seem deeply problematic. Not only does he inflict violence upon a whole nation (ten increasingly destructive plagues), but he also hardens the heart of Pharaoh, seemingly preventing him from

  • Easter Devotional

    8 April 2020  by Karen Fulton
      Thursday: Gethsemane    Read: Mark 14:32-42 Abba, Father, for you all things are possible … On Thursday evening Jesus goes with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, just outside Jerusalem, and prays. Earlier that evening he had celebrated the Passover with his disciples using elements of the traditional meal to point ahead to his own impending and violent death. He had also predicted his betrayal by

  • God Commanding Violence?

    6 January 2020  by Dr William Ford
    At Christmas, we remember the birth of one described as the ‘prince of peace’. We read in the gospels how he taught us to turn the other cheek and love our enemies, before demonstrating this in an amazing display of love by dying on the cross. Elsewhere in the Bible, however, we come across passages that portray God in a rather different way: either commanding or carrying out acts of violence. How do we read and understand these passa

  • CALLED TO...STAY AND SEND

    19 November 2019  by MAP
    Jesus calls us to make disciples. All of us, without exception, can follow Jesus’ command right where we live, in the context of our immediate surroundings. This could be in school, in the workplace, with our friends, or even in the privacy of our own home! Every church member can ask, “Where I am, and with what I’ve been given, how can I honour Christ in seeking to make disciples right here, right now? Local mission is neces

  • Is Every Movie a Sermon?

    8 October 2019  by Chris Lyttle
    "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!" (The Wizard of Oz, 1939) We live in a world intelligently designed to communicate the attributes of our creator (Romans 1:20) As much as we may try to ignore what’s behind the curtain, the entertainment we consume is no less intelligently designed to communicate a message from the mind of its creator to the consumer (that’s you and me). Nothing is mindless, and in its

  • Jesus in The Lord of the Rings

    17 September 2019  by Edward McKenzie
    Jesus as the prophet can be seen in the character of Gandalf. Gandalf paints an applicable picture of both the biblical prophet and of Jesus the ultimate prophet. The wizard’s death, resurrection and transfiguration all point to Christ. Like Jesus, Gandalf comes with a message which calls others to respond, to live in hope for truth and goodness. Gandalf is seen as a fulfilment of a work that only he could bring to completion, echoing the u

  • The Challenge of the Canaanites

    21 April 2018  by William Ford
    The negative biblical portrayal of the Canaanites appears to contrast sharply with the wider portrayal of YHWH’s relationship with humanity, and with Israel in particular, raising a challenge for reading these parts of the Bible as scripture. This article considers this portrayal by drawing together key biblical references to the Canaanites into two sections: Canaanites as a whole and as individuals.  Four potential images are evaluate
